lyrics

Amy’s here tonight
I’m exhausted
She’s in red and white
A phoenix bound for flight
Always hoped I’d be
Less in need of flattery and lights
a body drenched in night

I’d understand
Even worse
I wouldn’t even fight
I’d simply step aside
How my insides crawl
Could it be I’m the skin that warms your needs
But the stranger in your dreams.

I’m lost,
I’m tired
Amy, he’s yours
I’m trying
But I

I fell today
Fed the fear that covers her in grace
Frames the beauty of her ways
How he’d sing for you
He would move you the way he always does
The devil and the dove

I'm lost
I'm tired
Amy, he's yours
I'm trying
But I

I tried so hard to force it down,
a look, a pill, a thought
I swallow soft, a deathly cough awakes me from my sleep
Bathed in grey, a forced embrace
I held your hand too tight
You the dreamer, you the mystery, you the holy liar
The heat unbinds, the sweat reminds her
she’s swimming in her flaws
Graceless lady, soaked in maybes
Drowning in her shameless cause

This fragile thing
How I’ve used it
spun it round my mind till the thread is worn and tired
This human sting
Amy’s painting
The portrait that I’ve seen
the woman that you need
